"As the House Up On The Hill is situated among the trees, the infrastructure of HMTX is built in a similar way. The roots are our values, beliefs, and commitments. The trunk is our people and financials. The limbs are our pillars, the branches our towers, and the blossoms are the many products we offer. Our products and services are how we interact with the world."
